Police Find $1 Million Worth of Marijuana Hidden Inside Fresh Lettuce

One of the rarely used slang terms for marijuana is "the devil's lettuce," but it turns out that may actually be closer to the truth than you think.

Last week Indiana state troopers pulled over a tractor-trailer as it was traveling down the interstate in order to conduct a routine check. During the search, the troopers found "several criminator indicators." As they continued searching, they eventually found around 260 pounds of marijuana hidden inside containers filled with fresh lettuce. That amount of marijuana would be worth around $1 million. 

The troopers arrested two men, presumably the two drivers of the tractor-trailer, for dealing illegal marijuana.

On one hand, that's a pretty clever way to try to smuggle marijuana. And who knows, maybe someone won't notice the difference like Michael Scott on The Office?

On the other hand, marijuana is the devil's lettuce, as we said before. So you know people driving a truck filled with lettuce are immediately going to be under suspicion.

Unfortunately we don't think the salads in prison will be quite up to these two guys' standards.
